HEY, Kobe just got traded to the Memphis Grizzlies!!!!!!!

Ok, I was dreaming.  But for a Memphis fan, we would love for Kobe to come to Memphis.

What does everyone think of what is going on with him.  Why did he and Shaq get into like that, in the media.  I know what people are saying about it around here, I just wanted to hear what other people are saying.

I’m gonna miss you, Rerun.

Fred Berry, the bulb-shaped, squeaky-voiced actor famous for playing red-beret-wearing Rerun on the 1970s TV sitcom “What’s Happening!” has died at age 52, police said Wednesday.

Berry died Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles of apparent natural causes, police Officer Jason Lee said. The county coroner was investigating the exact nature of the death, but friends said Berry had been in ill health due to a recent stroke.

What Becomes a Legend Most? by Thulani Davis

Excerpt - from an old article.

People outside of her family may never know why Malikah Brown, one of the six daughters of Malcolm X, loaded up a sizable collection of his manuscripts, diaries, photographs, and negatives, and secretly hauled them off to a storage locker in Florida and then never reclaimed them. But when a still elusive man named James Calhoun bought the storage contents and then offered them to an auction house for sale, a door was opened into what remains of the papers of Malcolm X, later known as Malcolm Shabazz. It took legal action to stop that sale, and scholars and community activists alike hope that the outcome of this strange saga will be that steps are taken to preserve the intellectual legacy of this influential maverick.

Harry Belafonte on Colin Powell

HARRY BELAFONTE, ACTIVIST: There’s an old saying in the days of slavery. There are those slaves who lived on the plantation, and there were those slaves who lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master. Colin Powell was permitted to come into the house of the master.

Harry Belafonte indeed!  All I have to say is GO Harry!  I appreciate celebrities speaking their mind.  I also appreciate the rare opportunity for people to explain themselves if the soundbite doesn’t do the “soundmeal” justice.  Larry King seems to be an individual that tries to allow the individual an opportunity to clear up misunderstandings.  Read the entire interview at Black Commentator.

What is written in italics above is the soundbite.
